Gigantic golden asteroid could make everyone on Earth a billionaire

An asteroid that’s filled with gold and enough precious metals to turn everyone on Earth into a billionaire is being studied by NASA.

The asteroid – known as 16 Psyche – has a mass of less than 1% of our moon and it contains heaps of platinum, iron and nickel alongside the gold. The combined total value of all those precious metals would equal out at something like $700 quintillion.

If you brought it back to Earth and shared out the profits equally, it would make all seven billion of us a billionaire many times over.
